^Again, the Typhon Pact isn't an "arc," it's just the new status quo. It's like the Klingons and Romulans being around in TOS, or the Romulans and Cardassians being around in TNG. There wasn't any endgame for those political relationships.
I'm sure you're right Christopher
, however when presented as a title, Star Trek Typhon Pact
implies IMO some sort of contained narrative (whether mini series, close ended series etc), otherwise why bother with a new title and not have the TP an ongoing presence in the currently-ongoing novel series?
Because Pocket Books has a history of doing Star Trek
series that are thematically
linked rather than ones that present a single narrative.
Star Trek: Section 31
did not tell a single, unified narrative. Neither did Star Trek: The Lost Era
, or The Captain's Table
, or Invasion!
, or Worlds of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine
, Day of Honor
Obviously, they've done plenty of novel series that did
tell a single story -- Destiny, Gateways, Terok Nor
, etc. But it's never been automatically the case.
said, there is no Typhon Pact arc -- anymore than there was, say, a Cold War arc to James Bond
or John le Carré novels. The Typhon Pact is the new status quo, not the new problem to be solved.
By all indications, the TP novels tell a unified (though understandably large in scope) narrative - the TP novels are happening in a (more or less) chronological order, with plotlines spanning several novels. Further, there are no non-TP-related novels from the participating series (even IFM was linked to the post-Destiny
/ TP era).
Even if that's not the intent, the novels from 2009 onward dealing with the TP tell an arc of sorts, which would lead to a climax (if not an outright resolution) to at least some of the main TP plotlines (Slipstream Drive, involvement of secret "spy" organizations such as Tal Shiar and S31, Andorian situation, etc).
